May Valor Blocks Review

Valor Blocks is a subscription box that features officially licensed items from branches of the U.S. military. Prior to this month only the U.S. Army Block was available, but they've recently launched the Navy, Marines, and Air Force blocks, too!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review. Post contains affiliate links.

This is a review for the U.S. Army Valor Block. Blocks costs $34 per month with $6 shipping to the continental U.S. and military bases worldwide.  All active duty military and veterans receive a 10% discount.

Each month you'll receive four to six officially licensed collectibles and an exclusive t-shirt (you'll choose your t-shirt size when you first subscribe).

The May Valor Block had five collectibles plus the t-shirt. Before I first received these boxes I wasn't really sure what would be inside because I figured there weren't too many different military items out there. I was wrong. This is the third Valor Block I've received and I think they do a great job of sending fun and practical items.
  • U.S. Army T-Shirt: This t-shirt is the one that was on last month's info card as well, so I assume that was a misprint. Black is my favorite color to wear and the design on this is nice and simple. Below the United States Army text is a crest and a star.
  • U.S. Army Patch: This heat-seal patch can be ironed onto pretty much anything. It boasts the Great Seal of the United States.
  • U.S. Army Luggage Tags: This pack of two luggage tags feature the official U.S. Army logo and are made of a rubber material, so you don't have to worry about them breaking off of your bags.
  • U.S. Army Eagle Crest Lapel Pin: This pin has the same Eagle Crest design as the patch and can be pinned to a jacket, shirt, bag, or anywhere else you choose.
  • U.S. Army Magnet: This is a fairly large magnet that also features the Eagle Crest seal. It came in a protective velvet bag that would make it nice for gifting as well.
  • U.S. Army Logo Challenge Coin: Each box will contain an exclusive challenge coin, and this month's design features the Army logo. Challenge coins were historically used to represent your squadron or unit if you were ever challenged to prove your membership. They're a morale booster and a great way to show your support of the military!
Bottom Line: This month's Valor Block featured some great items. I really like the t-shirt and the challenge coins are a unique item, too (especially since they're exclusive to the box). I think Valor Blocks is a great way to show your support for the military, or to gift to a current active duty member or veteran.
